“How much scared does one feel in dark (on sunset ),
Go and ask the birds, who do not have a house.”
“If your prayers are potent, move this mosque my way,
Else have a drink and see its minarets sway.”
“Don’t go by the lines on the palm lines Ghalib,
Luck is bestowed even on people who don’t have hands.”
“There is no difference between living and dying in love,
One lives by watching the beloved on whom life is lost.”
“The prison of life & the bondage of grief are one & the same.
Before the onset of death, how can man expect to be free of grief?”
